So you're migrating away from an email domain, and have got to the final turn-it-off stage. Do you tell the central mail hub admins? Do you make sure all your users know? Do you make sure there are no references to it left in the routing for the replacement domain? Do you even know what the thousand messages a day going to that domain are?

AARGH!

Lack of planning on their part does not constitute an emergency on your part.
I recommend a long lunch in a place where mobile phones mysteriously do not work...

Good advice. Anyway, I've killed off some remnants of the domain, and I know who to CC: when one of their users complains about email not working.

I've noticed a lot of cases of backwardly-implemented migration in my time... l-(

Of course you don't tell anyone: why would you? That's what telepathy and osmosis are for.
